Boogeyman I reckon you said what was on our minds and the rest of us are too afraid to say. When he was first elected my dad thought he looked like the Joker from Batman...the cartoon one.
I think the last few presidents have made a laughing stock out of our country. I honestly don't care what color their skin is, as long as they do their job right. I know some pretty intelligent black individuals that I work with that would do a much better job than Obama is. I wouldn't mind seeing a woman president; but I'm not crazy about the potential candidates.
Honestly I think one of the biggest problems is that we aren't giving another political party a chance. People will argue that it's a waste of vote, but technically isn't the mindset of voting for the same two parties over and over again because you want the "lessor of two evils" technically is wasting a vote? I hope that we see a different party in office one day. Maybe green or independent party should be given a chance? Of course we can't just blame the president either. We have to blame Congress and the Supreme court as well. I just wish there was a reset button on the whole thing.
That's just my opinion. However, going back to the subject without trailing off too far with the politics...clowns would definitely be a scary theme. And perhaps you can incorporate some kind of haunted carnival or haunted circus. Maybe you can also serve some Halloween themed cotton candy and have some carnival games set up.
Edit: Kolchak you have a great point. I'm all for civil rights and equality regardless of gender and race, but unfortunately the pendulum seems to swing from one side to the other. At this point we're too afraid to offend someone who is black because they might take it the wrong way. We're also too afraid to not hire someone who is black, even if their credentials aren't as good. Honestly I don't think it should matter but in many ways it does. I have friends who are black, and they're nice guys. We're still a long way away from true equality.
